Third-year MFA Stage Management Candidate
BA in in Theatre Technology, Dillard University
Mandisa Reed is a 2014 graduate (summa cum laude) of Dillard University in New Orleans, LA. There, she obtained her degree in Theatre Technology, with an emphasis in Stage Management. Dillard credits include: Fences (SM), Dreamgirls (SM), The Piano Lesson (SM), Play/Write Showcase (SM) produced by Goat in the Road, along with a multitude of concerts and one-day programs. What started as a summer internship at Le Petit Theatre (one of the oldest, continuously operating theatres in the country), blossomed into a full-time job as the theatre’s box office manager and house manager – among many other hats. While working at Le Petit, Mandisa stage managed HAIR, and worked in other technical areas throughout her time with them.
As a third-year MFA Stage Management student, Mandisa is beyond excited to begin collaborating with fellow artists beyond UC San Diego, while further exploring career paths in management. She is looking forward to becoming the first of her siblings to have both an undergrad and graduate degree.
